About the 13th or 14th of June last, I missed this Sheep of Mr. Robinson's out of my Field, and on the Sunday following the Skin was brought to me, by a Person who had pick'd it up. The next Day about 12 o'Clock, Word was brought me that two Men were taken up at Westminster, and that some Mutton was found upon them. I then came up to London, and found the Prisoners in the Gate-House: I took them before Mr. De Viel, before whom they confessed that they went into the Field, and took the Sheep. They very particularly described the Field, and said they came up some Steps and over a Stile to get into the Field, and that there was a sort of a rising Hill or Bank in it. They said they took the Sheep up the Field and dressed it, and left part of it under a Hay-Cock.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Were there no other Sheep in the Field but this?</p>
<p>Day. Yes, a great many.</p>

On Sunday the 14th of June last, at 11 o'Clock at Night, I met the Prisoner Alder in King's-Street, Westminster, in a very odd posture. He had got something that made him go almost double. I was going to stop him, but the Wheel of a Coach, which was then going along, falling off, I ran to the assistance of the People who were in the Coach. Before I could overtake him again he had got as far as Tothill-Street, and the Neighbours who were standing at their Doors, called out to the Watchmen to stop him. They did so, and brought him to the Watch-House: I was present and saw the hind quarter of a pretty large Sheep, and the Neck and Breast taken from him. I asked him how he came by it? and he said he had it from one
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174107010003"/> Thompson as part of a Debt. I saw that it was not kill'd in the manner that Butchers kill their Meat, and so I took him to the Gate-House, and the next Morning carried him before Mr. De Viel. He still kept to the same story, and said he could tell us the Man whom he had it from; upon that he went with us to Thompson's Lodging, and on my asking him if he had ever sold any Mutton to Alder, he said, he had not. I immediately secur'd him, and on searching the Room, I found a

I put my Hand into the Bag, and felt that there was flesh in it. He said it was Mutton, and he had it from a Man in Holbourn that owed him 18 s. and that he took it for half of his Debt. I had a suspicion that it was stolen, so I took him to the Watch-house, and from thence he was carried to the Gate-House.</p>

The Prisoner Alder was brought to the Gate-house about half an hour past 11 o'Clock; and the next Morning I had him before Colonel De Viel. I was likewise present when Thompson and Alder were together before the Justice, and they both said it signified nothing to deny it, for they stole the Sheep out of Primrose Hill, and were both equally concerned. I saw the Mutton which was found in Thompson's Room, and it appeared to be part of the same Sheep, as that which we found upon the other Prisoner Alder.</p>

When we got thither, I heard a Man say, D - n you, you Rascal, what Business have you with my Coach? The Prisoner Steers then open'd the Coach-Door, and I thought he was going to let me out, but instead of that, he came into the Coach to me, and one hand he employed in a very indecent manner, the other he put into my Pocket, and took out 6 s. 6 d. I begg'd for God's sake that he would let me alone, and I would pay him, but he paid no regard at all to what I said.</p>
<p>Jury. Did any other Man appear at the same Time?</p>
<p>Strickland. No, the other Man kept beating me with the Butt End of his Whip all the Time.</p>
<p>Q. When you desired them to let you alone, what followed?</p>
<p>Strickland. Steers went out at the Backside of the Coach, and the other came in, and offered to be rude with me. While Steers was in the Coach with me, another Man (I can't tell who it was) poked in his Whip at the Window, and with the Handle of it struck out two of my sore Teeth. As soon as Steers had pick'd my Pocket he went out, and the other Man came in; upon that I called out Watch as loud as I could, and then Steers took me by the Cloak and pulled me out of the Coach upon the ground. When I was out of the Coach, 2 Women came up and said, d - n you, you B - ch, what Business have you with our Husbands, and gave me several Blows; I cry'd out, and then the Prisoner Steers cut me with the small End of the Whip. This was over against Somerset House, and the Soldiers there hearing the Disturbance came to my Assistance, and the Men took to their Coach and drove away, to a Cellar by the New-Church.</p>
<p>Q. What Condition did they leave you in?</p>
<p>Strickland. Without my Cap, Handkerchief, Cloak and Apron; and all over Blood. I lost these Things at the same Time that I lost the Money,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174107010004"/> and they took them from me.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the Prisoners are the Persons who robb'd you?</p>
<p>Strickland. I can swear to the Prisoner Steers, and Gloide own'd before the Justice that he was with him.</p>
<p>Q. When they stopped with their Coach at this Cellar-Door, what follow'd?</p>
<p>Strickland. I went with 3 Watchmen to the Cellar, and they asked me if I knew the Men; I told them I knew one of them for he had a Scar on his Eye; so we went down into the Cellar, and neither of the Prisoners were there; but we found them both in a back Room, and although they had changed Coats, I knew Steers to be one of the Persons that robbed me. There were a great many Men in the Cellar, and the Watchmen were afraid of them, and told me if I took the Number of the Coach that was sufficient. This was on the Monday Morning about 2 o'Clock, and on Tuesday I went to the Hackney-Coach Office, and a Man there told me that Mr. Clark, the Master of the Coach, was a very civil Man, and the Matter might be made up for about 2 Guineas, but I was informed I could not do it; so Mr. Clark and Steers were both summoned to appear. On the Friday following I went again to the Office, and Clark appeared, but Steers did not. Mr. Clark desired that I would not indict his Coach, and gave me a Crown, and promised to get a Warrant against Steers to take him, and if he could not take him in a Week, he would give me another Crown. The Prisoners both kept out of the Way, and were not taken till the 14th of June, at which Time they were carried before Mr. De Viel.</p>
<p>Q. As the Distance between the Commission of this Robbery, and the apprehending the Prisoners was so great, could you remember either of their Faces?</p>
<p>Strickland. Yes, there were 2 Lights against the Place where Steers took me up; - it was just by St. Martin's Lane.</p>
<p>Q. When the Prisoners were taken could you remember any Thing as to Gloide?</p>
<p>Strickland No, I could not swear to him.</p>
<p>Q. Could you recollect that he was the Person whom you had seen in the Cellar with Steers?</p>
<p>Strickland. Yes, I knew him to be the same Person.</p>
<p>Q. When the Prisoners were before Mr. De Viel did they own any Thing?</p>
<p>Strickland. Yes, Steers owned that he horse-whipped me, but I don't remember that he owned the robbing me; but I am sure the Person that horse-whipped me was the same that robbed me.</p>
<p>Q. Did Gloide confess any Thing?</p>
<p>Strickland. Gloide only owned that he attempted to commit Indecencies with me, but that I would not let him.</p>
<p>Q. Can you recollect any Thing else that they confessed?</p>
<p>Strickland. No nothing else; they said they horse-whipped me because they thought I was a Whore.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Did not she own to several People that she was very much fuddled?</p>
<p>Strickland. No, I never did, for I was not fuddled.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Do you know one Mrs. Murphey or Mrs. Rockham?</p>
<p>Strickland. No, I do not.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Did not you say the Women tore your Pocket off?</p>
<p>Strickland. No, they only beat me, and asked me what Business I had with their Husbands.</p>
<p>Steers. What was the Reason that you staid so long as from March to June before you took us up?</p>
<p>Strickland. Mr. Clark told me he would take them up, besides I was taken very ill.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Did not you hear that we were both at our Stand in the Day Time?</p>
<p>Strickland. They were only out at Nights; besides I was ill and could not go about to look after them.</p>

On the 10th of March, about 2 in the Morning, this Woman, Strickland, came to my Stand, the Corner of Catharine Street, and appeared to be very much abused. She desired me to go with her, for she had like to have been murdered. I told her I had heard the Lashes of a Whip for near half an Hour, but it being out of my Parish I durst not venture to go, except she could call the other Watchmen out of the Strand. She got 3 other Watchmen, and we all went together to Woodward's Cellar, where the Coach was standing. The other Men desired me to go down first; accordingly I did, and when I came down I saw the Coachman, Steers shuffling about from one Table to another, endeavouring to hide his Whip. I accused about half a dozen Men in the Cellar, and asked the Woman if she knew any of them; she said she did not, but when I came to Steers, she fell on her Knees, and wished she might never rise more if he was not one of the Men.</p>
<p>Q. Did she take Notice of any other Man at that Time?</p>
<p>Haydon. No, she did not; she said nothing of Gloide then.</p>
<p>Q. When you discovered Steers would she have charged you with him?</p>
<p>Haydon. Yes, but I said the Number of the Coach was sufficient, and there were so many Men in the Cellar that I was afraid we should have our Brains beat out. In a little Time afterwards the Prisoner Steers came out of the Cellar, and I would have pushed the Woman away, but she looked in his Face and said, this is the Person that whipped
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174107010005"/> me, upon which he turned about and said; d - n you, you B - ch, for half a Farthing I would horse whip you again. The next Day I went with the Prosecutrix to the Coach-Office about the Number of the Coach, and the Master of it was summoned, and on his appearing, he gave her a Crown, and promised her another if he did not take Steers in a short Time.</p>
<p>Q. Was you before the Justice with the Prisoners?</p>
<p>Haydon. Yes, and I heard Steers own that he whipped her with a double thong'd Whip: The Justice asked them, what they went into the Coach for, and one of them, I think it was Gloide, smiled and said, with Intent to lie with her.</p>
<p>Prisoners. When she came to you at your Stand, did she say she had been robbed?</p>
<p>Haydon. Yes, she said she had been robbed of her Landlady's Cloak, her Cap, and 6 s. 6 d. in Money, and desired me to go and take the Persons.</p>
<p>Prisoners. Did not she charge some Women with the Robbery?</p>

On the 9th of March last, he drove a Hackney-Coach for me, No. 248, and on the Wednesday following a Summons came with a Complaint against that Number to appear at the Office on the Friday. On the Thursday Morning, I went up Stairs to call the Prisoner as usual, and informed him of this Summons, and of the Complaint: He said, he knew nothing of it, but however if he was to be sent to Newgate he would certainly appear. He lay a bed the best Part of that Day, and the next Day instead of appearing according to his Promise, he absconded, and I could not find him, so I went myself to the Office, and was informed that a Woman and two Watchmen had been to complain against me. I afterwards went into Covent Garden to see for Steers, but he was not to be found, so I went to the Office again, and the Prosecutrix was there, and told me she had been robbed of 6 s. 6 d., her Cloak, Apron and Cap. I told her it was out of my Power to produce the Man, but if she would not appear against me at the Office, I would give her a Crown then, and another if I did not take him in a Week. In about a Week afterward she was taken ill, and I went to see her, and gave her 5 d. or 6 d. to get blooded. We got a Warrant from Justice De Viel, and Steers was taken; Glide was taken the same Morning at 10 o'Clock, and carried before the Justice.</p>
<p>Q. What passed when you were before the Justice?</p>
<p>Clark. Steers being asked why he left my Coach, said, he was taken ill at Temple-Bar, and sent Glide away with it, and ordered him to bring it again at 2 o'clock. He said, Glide, did not return with the Coach, upon which he went to see for him at Woodward's Cellar, where he had left Word that he was gone to Westminster. That he saw the Coach in the Strand, with a Linkman on the Box, and a Man and Woman in the Coach: that he pulled the Woman out of the Coach, and gave her 3 or 4 Strokes with his Whip. Gloide said he was in the Coach at the same time, and would have lain with the Woman, but did not.</p>

I went to Woodward's Cellar, and while I was there, the Coach stopped on the other Side of Somerset House Water Gate. I went to see what was the Reason that it did not come up, and saw a Fellow on the Box, and Gloide and this Woman in the Coach. The Woman got out of the Coach and went up Catharine Street, and I went to Woodward's Cellar again, and watered my Horses, intending to go Home, and Gloide gave me my great Coat, which I had lent him to drive in.

They both got into the Coach, and I drove on slowly to Somerset House, and then the Coachman came up, and cut me over the Legs with his Whip, for driving his Coach. Gloide jump'd out, and Steers took the Woman out, and used his Whip a little about her. The Woman cried out Watch! but as for seeing him put his Hands near her Clothes, I did not. The Coach stood about 2 Yards beyond Somerset House; and I did not go above 10 Yards, but stood by the Watch House all the Time, and saw what passed.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to be locked out?</p>
<p>Lloyd. I had been drinking with my Brother in Law, Jemmy Scott, at the Night House, by Temple-Bar.</p>

I happened to be out pretty late, and was locked out of my Lodging, so I went to the Watch-House thinking to stay there all Night; but a Brick-maker took me down to a Night House where I picked up the Prisoner. The Brick-maker got him a Woman, and we all went up Stairs, but they left me and the Prisoner alone together. I paid 6 d. for my Bed, and the Prisoner lay with me; and we had not been a bed long before she wanted a quartern of Gin; I put my Hand into my Pocket to pay for it, and then my Money was safe. When she had drank the Gin, she got up and bolted the Door, and I being weary fell asleep, and when I waked my Money was gone and she too. I met her 2 or 3 Days afterwards in Bond Street, and asked her about the Money. I had a Crown in my Pocket when I went up Stairs with her, which my Father left me, and I desired her to let me have that, and I would let her go, but she said she only had the other Money.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He came into the House, and asked me to go to Bed with him, and I never saw a Farthing of his Money but what he gave me and that was 6 d. and no more.

She shewed me up a Pair of Stairs, and when I came into the Chamber, I saw the Prisoner Eades, and the 2 other Women lying on the Floor, covered over with a Blanket or Rug. After I had sat down a little, I desired Eliz. Eccles to fetch me a Quart of Beer, and when I had drank part of it, they drank the rest, and I fell asleep, and they robbed me of the Goods mentioned in the Indictment.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure you had all those Things about you, when you fell asleep?</p>
<p>J. R.. Yes, I am sure I had them when I went into the Room.</p>
<p>Q. What Time did you awake?</p>
<p>J. R.. I can't say, because I had lost my Watch, but it was past 11 o'Clock before the Wells broke up, and after that I went into the Tap-House, and sat till it was pretty late.</p>
<p>Q. Had you not been drinking, or were you sober?</p>
<p>J.R.. I could not be very sober to be sure, but I had my Senses enough to know that I had my Things when I went to sleep, because I looked out of the Window, and saw People milking their Cattle, and I thought to get some Milk, but I fell asleep, and when I 'wak'd, I missed my Goods, and the Prisoners were all gone off. These two Boys were in the Room at the same Time, though I did not see them because they were covered over and hid. The Prisoners were taken and carried before Justice Manley, and when I came there, I found all these Things which are in the Custody of the Constable. These are the Shoe-Buckles; here is one Knee-Buckle, and the Tobacco Stopper, and this is the Bag which contained the Money, but here is not half the Money I lost.</p>
<p>Eliz. Eccles. Ask him if he knows this Shilling?</p>
<p>J. R.. Yes, this very Shilling was taken from me with the other Things: It is a leaden one, and I put it into my Fob-Pocket because I would not put it off. This Silver Portugal Piece was likewise taken from me.</p>

On the 31st of May, between 5 and 6 in the Evening, the Prisoner brought a black Mare faddled and bridled, to my House, the Bell at Bow. He left her with me all Night, and went away to lie at another House. The next Morning he came to fetch her away, and when she came to the Stable Door, I seeing her Shoes were bad, immediately suspected her to be stolen, and stopp'd her. When I had stopped her, the Prisoner came into the Yard, and I asked him whether the Mare was his own or not; he said he had borrowed it of his Master Smith, who lived at Halstead in Essex, that his own Name was Smith, and he was going to Hounslow to a Kinsman of his Master's. We were not satisfied with this, but took him before a Justice at Bow, and there he denied that his Name was Smith, and would not tell any Name, for he said if he did it would be the worse for him. The Justice then committed him to New-Prison, and I had the Mare cried at Rumford and Epping, and my next Door Neighbour, Mr. Cook the Collar-Maker, sent a Letter into the Country. On the Friday following, Mr. Wash came to my House, and owned the Mare, and had her away again.</p>
<p>Wash. The Mare which I had from Edwards was the same that I lost.</p>
<p>Q. How far from Bow is the Place where you lost your Mare?</p>
<p>Wash. It is about 40 Miles, and I miss'd her at 5 o'Clock in the Morning.</p>

<p>Prisoner. I came up to London to see for Work, but there being none to be got, I left my Things, at Bow, and returned Home. When I got Home my Friends persuaded me to fetch my Things away, and not to go to work. My Father follows the farming Business, and gave me the liberty to take a Horse whenever I would. I got up early in the Morning, in order to come away, and there were some Horses in the Road, which I thought to be my Father's, so I made bold to go into the Stable and take a Bridle and Saddle, and one of those Horses. I desire Mr. Wash may be ask'd concerning my Character.</p>
<p>Wash. He is a Neighbour's Son. His Friends bear a very good Character, and I never heard any harm of him before this.</p>
<p>Q. Does his Father live so near you, that your Horses run together?</p>
<p>Wash. No, they never go together, and I live half a Mile from him.</p>

<p>Brown. Before he put him into the Ditch, and the old Man fell back again, and hit his Head against the Gate.</p>

<p>Clark. I saw him bringing an old Man along the Road: I asked him if he had got a drunken Man, and he said, he was no more drunk than I was, but that he was an idle Fellow and a Rogue, and wanted to get into some Body's House when he saw a Conveniency. He said he had brought him from Woodrosse's, where he had lain long enough if he had been drunk to have been sober again, for he had been ever since 1 o'Clock coming from the Adam and Eve, which is about a Mile distant. My Sister keeps the Angel, and I told him she was very much obliged to him for bringing him here, and he said his Intention was to carry him out of the Parish,

<p>Counsel. How long did the Deceased lie there?</p>
<p>Clark. I can't tell; I heard no more of him for a quarter of an Hour, and then he lay at my Sister Walker's Door, and the Prisoner said, come Mrs Walker, and see me put this Money into the Rogue's Pocket, or else to-morrow he will swear I have robbed him. He put 14 d into his Pocket, and then I went away and saw no more of him till next Morning. I asked the Prisoner what he had done with the old Man, and he said, d - n him, he had ducked him several Times.</p>
<p>Counsel. What passed after this?</p>
<p>Clark. I heard no more till a Man went by in the Night, who called to us, and said, we had turned a Man out of Doors drunk. I got out of Bed, and looked out of the Window; the Deceased was then lying on the Ground, and a Man went to help him up, and said, d - n him, he will not stand. Presently afterwards another Man came by, and said the Man was dying, so I got up, and my Sister and I went down Stairs. She asked the old Man if he would have any Thing; and he moved his Hand and Head, but could not speak. We called the Neighbours about us, and I put a little Rum, Water and Sugar in a Sp oon into his Mouth, but I can't tell whether he swallowed any of it.</p>
<p>Counsel. Did you look at his Head or any part of him?</p>
<p>Clark. After he was dead, I looked at his Legs, and there was a sort of a scratch on one of them. I did not take Notice of his Head, neither did I see him strip'd, but I saw his Clothes afterwards, and he had about half a pound of Raisins and a piece of Bread in his Pocket all wet. His Shirt was dry just on the Stomach, and the other Part was wet. He lived 'till 5 o'Clock in the Morning and then died.</p>
<p>Counsel. Was any Body brought to look on him?</p>
<p>Clark. No, there was no Coroner or Surgeon sent for to examine him.</p>
<p>Counsel. Do you apprehend, as the Deceased fell against the Gate, that could be the occasion of his Death?</p>
<p>Clark. I can't tell; I am not a judge of that, but I do not believe it was.</p>

I imagined the Man was drunk, and so I did not stay, but kept jogging on, and left my Man behind, who saw more of the Affair.</p>

He made an offer to take him from the Ground, and I asked him what he was doing? He said he was a drunken, sorry Fellow, and he would get him out of the Parish. I desired him to take the man out of the way of the carts and waggons, and he said he design'd to put him out of the Parish, but would duck him a little first, and that would bring him to himself. The Deceased then seemed to be weary and weak, and was lying on his Back, and desired the Prisoner several times to let him alone.</p>
<p>Counsel. Did you apprehend at that time that he was a sick or a dying Man?</p>
<p>Brett. No, he seemed to me to be weary and weak. I have known the Prisoner about 3 Years, and never heard that he did any Mischief to any Body before this Misfortune happened.</p>

The Deceased made no answer to this, so the Prisoner took him up with his Knees bending under him and laid him along at a little distance. The Prisoner then said he was a pilsering Rogue, and he would have him out of the Parish for fear he should rob somebody in the Night. He took him by the Arm to the

I said to the Prisoner, Coachman, let the Man alone, when he is come to himself he will go away; and he replied, d - n it, this comes of listning to a parcel of foolish Women. The old Man then complained of his Legs, and the Prisoner still insisted on his going away, and if he did not he said he would throw him into the Pond. I did not hear the Deceased cry Murder, though I imagine he did by the Answer which the Prisoner made, for he said, Now you hear the old Rogue, he cries Murder.</p>
<p>Counsel. Did you see the Deceased any Time afterwards?</p>
<p>Roberts. I saw him the next morning after he was dead. There was a Bruise on the top of his Head, and I saw no other marks except a few black and blue spots on his Legs, but how they came I can't tell, for I did not see the Prisoner offer any violence to him, only in pulling him up.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think that Bruise which you saw on the Deceased's Head, was the occasion of his Death?</p>
<p>Roberts. I can't say indeed. It was a Bruise, but it was not swelled, neither was the Skin broke. These Breeches and Garters are the same which the Deceased wore at that Time.</p>

On the 14th of September last between 11 and 12 o'Clock, the prisoners and I met a man just by the Hole in the Wall near Canbury House at Islington. Crossley came up to him and stopped him, and he knocked Crossley down: I went up to Crossley's assistance and he knocked me down. Then Hagan came before him and knocked him down, and kept beating him with a broomstick 'till we recovered ourselves, to rifle his pockets: Hagan swore we should kill him and then he would have no suspicion of us, so we put him into the ditch, and left him.</p>
<p>Mr. Bigg, Surgeon. On the 15th of September the deceased was received into our Ward. He had a great number of contusions, and his head was beat almost to a Jelly. I ask'd him if he had any retchings upon him, he said he was only sick and saint, and during this time he was perfectly sensible, and continued so for above 10 days. I asked him how this accident happened, and he said he had been to carry money to pay for his Child's nursing, and was met by 4 or 5 men, 2 of whom he could have master'd, had not the others come up and flung him into the ditch, for he was a very sturdy man, almost 6 foot high. At first I had great hopes of his life, for I could find no fissure in his skull; but some time afterwards on enlarging the wound, found there was a necessity to trepan it. The membranes look'd of a very bad colour underneath, and on laying them open farther, I found a fissure which ran quite under the temporal bone, and entirely divided the orbit of his eye, and he absolutely died of the wound which he received at that time.</p>
<p>Jury to White. Are you positive the Prisoners were present at the commission of this murder?</p>
<p>White. Yes, we all went out with intent to rob. We have known one another 5 or 6 years, and followed labouring work; sometimes we went out on this Lay, and sometimes got drunk and spent our money.</p>
<p>Q. What places did you resort to together?</p>
<p>White. We lived as neighbours together at Holloway.</p>

<p>Gerrard Cavenagh. Last sunday was tennight at night, the Prisoner Evans met me in Fleet-street near Fleet-Ditch, and carried me to the Prisoner Trueman's house. I followed the young jade up stairs; she sat down in a chair and I sat by her, and Hoskins brought up a pint bottle of China Ale, I think they call it, for I never drank any of that liquor before. When we had taken that bottle between us 3, we had another, and made an end of that in the same manner. Then this young jade asked me to go to bed with her, but she was battered and had a black eye, so I would not have any thing to say to her, but gave her 6 d. to be quiet, for I was sure she had a mind to do me a mischief. Presently she in the red cloak (Hoskins) came up; I ask'd her what was her demand? she said a shilling; but I thought 6 d. was enough, for those 2 pints did not hold above a pot: she said the common price of this house was 12 d. for 2 bottles and 6 d. for a bottle, so I got my hand into my pocket, and drew up a shilling, and said it was an extravagant house, for the liquor was worth nothing, and a pint of beer would be better than 5 bottles of it. I had clear'd my way and was for going off, but this young jade (Evans) took hold of the skirt of my coat, and said she would not be quit of me: then the other Woman came up, took hold of my hair, while Evans took me by the body, and pick'd my money out of my pocket. I immediately got hold of Evans, and Hoskins cut my fingers and my cheek with a knife to make me let her loose. After this they called that gentleman at the bar ( Trueman ) up, and he beat me in the face, and said he would murder me before I should leave the place. Then I lost my stock and clasp, but which of them took it I can't tell. They kept beating and battering me about some time, and at last I made my way to the door, leaving my hat and cane behind me, and met the drawer coming up, but I knock'd him down stairs again. I cried out murder! and a Watchman who was crying the hour within 3 yards of the door took me up to the watch-house, and afterwards secur'd the Prisoners.</p>
<p>Trueman. When you first saw me was you not on the stair-case, coming down to get away?</p>
<p>Cavenagh. No, I never saw him till he came into the room, and gave me a knock in the face.</p>

I went to assist the watchman in carrying the Prisoners before a magistrate, and as we came back, Trueman drew this knife, and swore if I came near him he would cut me to pieces. After we came from Guild-hall, and got to the lodge at Newgate, Trueman flung a great piece of chalk at me and swore he would be revenged of me.</p>

Trueman and the woman in the red cloak (Hoskins) who goes for his wife, were sitting at the door together at the same time, and said the man had lost nothing.</p>

Accordingly I went down to the house. and found Trueman and Hoskins at the door. Hoskins immediately ran in doors, and on my going into the house to see for her, one

I was constable for the night that this thing happen'd, and hearing a Hurley-burley I sent the watchmen out to see what was the matter, and they brought the Prosecutor and three Prisoners to the watch-house. The Prosecutor seem'd to be in a very bloody condition, and had a large cut across the back of his hand, and a bruise under one of his eyes. He charged the Prisoners with robbing him, so I thought it convenient to commit them to the Compter, and him to Bridewell, till the next morning; when they were carried before the Alderman at Guild-hall.</p>

<p>Prisoner Trueman. The Prosecutor brought 2 Women to my house while I was out, they went to fighting among themselves, and when I came home I went up to them; the Prosecutor struck me in the face, and then I took to my own defence.</p>

I was drinking last monday with the prosecutor and the prisoner Trueman's brother at the Sun and Cart, and the prosecutor said he had nothing to say against Trueman for he did not come up stairs till after he lost his money. He said he saw the girl come down Fleetstreet, and she asked him to treat her with a pint of beer, and upon that he went with her to Trueman's house at Fleet Ditch, where they drank a bottle of China Ale for which he paid a shilling. That he was going to be conversant with the girl, but catching her hand in his pocket, he gave her 6 d. for her trouble, and would not have any thing to say to her, for he thought it was enough for her to be a whore only and not a thief too. He said they battled together for about 10 or 12 minutes, and then Trueman came up and knocked him down backwards, at the same time swearing he would murder him. That after this another man came up and he lost his stock and clasp in the scuffle, but who took it he could not tell. This is all that I can remember, for his discourse was so imperfect, and his expressions so intricate, that a man must have the eloquence of Tully to express their meaning.</p>
